I'm getting all in a middle with what frequently used terms actually mean, as to me they often conjure up sounds opposite to those being described!
Some words I get - resonant, deep etc. But others like those below I think I interpret differently and they are often written in reviews and descriptions...
So, what do these words mean / sound like to you...

bright
warm
mellow
punchy
(there are probably more)...

As always, thanks :-)

Definitely! Imagine buying an expensive uke because the seller says it is very resonant, but when you get it, it's nothing special. It's like judging a beauty contest. Everyone has their own opinion.
